HOW TO MAKE PEANUT BUTTER PIE WITH A CHEWY BROWNIE CRUST
Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 350 degrees F or 175 degrees C.
Step 2: In an ungreased 9-inch glass pie plate, add the pie crust according to package instruction. Then, flute the edge.
Step 3: In a bowl, add the brownie mix, peanut butter chips, apple sauce, water, and egg. To mix, stir 50 strokes.
Step 4: Transfer the batter into the unbaked pie crust.
Step 5: Place inside the preheated oven and bake for about 15 minutes. Then, cover the crust edges with aluminum foil and bake for another 15 to 20 minutes more or until the crust is golden brown and the center is set.
Step 6: Once done, remove from the oven and allow to cool for at least 20 minutes before placing in the fridge for an hour or so to cool completely.
Step 7: Meanwhile, using an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese, peanut butter, and confectioners’ sugar until smooth. Then, fold in the whipped topping. Evenly spread the mixture over the brownie and sprinkle over the peanuts and chocolate chips.
Step 8: Place the brownies inside the fridge for at least 30 minutes before serving.
Step 9: For any leftovers, cover and refrigerate.
